Maxim 380 - Price Reduced Drastically After Lightning Strike

by John Perry
(Panama, Panama City)


LOCATION: Pacific side of the Panama Canal.

My cruising catamaran has been for sale for just over a month for $189k. Last Friday, it was struck by lightning, so I have been forced to reduce the price to $110k, as-is/where-is (Panama, on the Pacific side of the canal). The full spec, pre-lightning strike as well as a damage report post-lightning strike can be seen on Maxim 380 Catamaran For Sale By Owner/

I cannot find the exit points of the strike, but suspect that it could have been any or all of the the following: SSB ground plate, fridge & freezer cooling plates, depth transducer, the fish finder transducer or the anchor chain (the boat was at anchor).

The strike must have been very small because the wind anemometer and tricolour are still in place and working. The VHF antenna is gone, but the VHF still works and there are no black marks on the mast. What was left of the Windex landed in my dinghy and is no longer serviceable, but still in reasonable condition. Go figure?

If you are interested in a project boat, please contact me (not the broker - our listing agreement has been changed to non-exclusive so that I can sell her privately) through the contact page of the above website.

Boreal 44 Sailboat For Sale

by Steve Wrye
(Hood River, Oregon, USA)


Our beautiful 2013 Boreal 44, RC Louise, is for sale. Due to health issues and the call of our grandchildren, my wife and I are retiring from sailing. Being on the ocean from age 6 to 65 is enough for me!

The Boreal is the ultimate French aluminum centerboard expedition sailboat. If you can’t wait for the time it now takes for a new Boreal to be built, we have one for you. As far as we know, it is the only one on the market at this time.

RC Louise is fast, sea kindly and strong, a proven ocean crossing machine. She is made to go to high latitudes or exotic tropical Islands where her one meter draft with the centerboard up makes her perfect to get into places few boats can go. Many Boreals have sailed to Antartica and South Georgia Island; we were on our way to the remote Caroline Islands and the jungle rivers of Borneo before plans changed.

Boreal won the 2015 European blue water boat of the year, beating out Allures and Jimmy Cornell’s Garcia expedition boat. In comparison, the Boreal has an all aluminum deck/cabin/doghouse and has a protected single rudder and prop instead of two exposed twin rudders and exposed prop. The Boreal has a watertight doghouse with 360 view, and a wide keel box with 10,000 lbs of encapsulated lead which enhances stability.

The interior is European ash, which makes it light and airy. The layout includes a double forward cabin berth with head, one quarter berth with two singles, one quarter berth with a double, and a second head aft of the galley. The salon is raised with a welcoming table, which also drops down to a huge berth. There are good handholds and capacious storage through out. The three inches of insulation and the central Refleks diesel heating stove plus radiators in each sleeping cabin makes a Boreal warm and comfortable at high latitudes. The three inches of insulation keeps the boat cool below decks in the afternoon tropical sun.

The rig is a cutter with a full batten Elvstrom Hydranet main, genoa, and self-tacking staysail, as well as a gennaker. We think one key to sailing performance is the two stern dagger boards. Drop the lee dagger board going to weather, beam reach or a broad reach and you feel like you are on a railroad track, straight and true. Whether you are using the NKE autopilot or the WindPilot self steering, RC Louise’s helm hardly moves. The centerboard can be adjusted up or down from the helm by hydraulic RAM and from the mast manually using a winch.

Just a few other things we love about the Boreal 44... The watertight stern lazarette is huge. This keeps not only the deck clean and safe, but allows immediate full access to the quadrant. On ocean passages we put the inflatable down below along with the 8 HP outboard on a dedicated bracket. The forward lazarette with its ice breaking bow is also watertight and large. The rectangular windlass and chain locker is just in front of the mast and keeps 100 meters of chain weight in the center of the boat. The engine room has amazing access to sit and work from under the companionway steps, which raise easily on a hinge, and also from a door in the port aft cabin. It is the most sea kindly boat we have ever owned; Tracy always got the three day sea sickness on our Mason 44 and never read at sea, but on the Boreal she does not get sick and reads for hours mid-ocean. Recent maintenance has been extensive, including new safety lines, rigging inspection and tune, bottom paint.

If you don’t know the Boreal line, get a taste of the life by looking online for 1. Boreal Yachts, 2.,
3., 3. Arctic Boreal Expedition on YouTube, and 4. Matt Chauvel on YouTube.

If you would like full specifications and inventory list as well as more photos, or want to talk about the boat, please email me at or call 541-806-3998 (USA).

Statistics: LOA 13.8 m, Beam 4.3 m, Draft 1.02m/2.48m.

All our gear is included: life raft, iridium sat phone, copious spares, dinghy, and much more.

The price we are asking is $549,000 USD.

She is on the hard in Annapolis, MD, US.

A 1980 West Wight Potter 15 for Sale

Kalihi, Samson Marine C-Mist 32


For more boats like this one that are currently for sale please go to Cruising Sailboats for Sale...

Kalihi is a Samson Marine C-Mist, a ferro-cement adaptation of William Atkins' Eric design- . We built her at a Samson Marine yard in Clinton, CT, and launched her in 1977. We now keep her in Salem, MA. She was built to be seaworthy and simple for a couple to sail, and to be comfortable and affordable both as a cruiser and as a home. For years she’s done just that.

Her heavy displacement hull with long keel performs well in a seaway, and provides huge space for gear and provisions. Her cutter rig allows for a variety of sail configurations to match conditions. Her main with full length battens and dutchman furling system is easy to handle and to reef. Her genoa is cut high in the foot to provide good visibility. Her yankee jib drives to weather on blustery days, yet is easy for one person to strike. Her heavily constructed, club-footed forestaysail is dependable when set with a reefed main in a blow, and is self-tending sailing to weather.

Kalihi’s construction follows the Sampson Marine C-Mist specifications. Hull and decks are ferrocement. Marine plywood bulkheads are bolted to ferrocement web frames that are integral to the hull. Fiberglass covered marine plywood cabin and cockpit are bolted to the decks. Ferrocement engine bed logs are integral to the hull, and are fitted with 3/8” SS studs to accommodate various engine mounting configurations. A ferrocement pad, integral to the keel, is fitted with 3/8” SS bolts to anchor the base of the mast compression column. Steel ballast is encapsulated in the ferrocement keel. Hull and decks are sealed inside and out with epoxy, and require little maintenance other than an occasional fresh coat of marine paint.

Her accommodations are simple. Aft below the companionway, there’s a large chart table to port with icebox below. The galley is to starboard with an alcohol stove and plenty of storage for pots, pans, and provisions. Her main saloon includes port and starboard settees with end tables, a pilot berth outboard to port, cupboards outboard to starboard, and a Petit Godin coal stove. The head is forward to port with a hanging locker to starboard. The forepeak has a double berth to port, a desk and sail stowage to starboard, and storage for storm rodes and chain. There’s additional storage forward of the mooring bits for fenders, jerry cans, anchor rodes, etc.

We lived aboard for about thirty years in various Connecticut and Massachusetts towns, first the two us, then when our son was born, the three of us. We’ve cruised from western Long Island Sound to Mount Desert, Maine. But, now at our age, sailing our 16’ spritsail skiff is more our speed. We hope that someone else might cruise safely, affordably and comfortably aboard Kalihi. She’s got a lot of miles left in her.

Viking 28 for Sale

by Tim McKenna
(Toronto, Ontario, Canada)


Viking 28 for Sale - A Great Day Sailing Boat
Located in Toronto, Ontario, Canada

The Viking 28 is well known for its ability to handle heavy wind and waves yet sails extremely well in light breezes, making it a great first boat for anyone wanting to get into the sport of sailing or those getting into club racing.

The long cockpit makes it ideal for entertaining at the dock or taking your friends out on the water. It sails like a dinghy but you don’t get wet.

It is equipped with a Yanmar 1GM10 diesel inboard engine. The engine was replaced two years ago with a lightly used one which was refreshed and installed by a master diesel mechanic. It runs perfectly and starts in one second. The fuel tank and system were refreshed four years ago.

The engine drives a Gori 2 blade folding propeller (important to club racers and when sailing in very light winds).

Sails: 1 main and 153% Genoa & 90% jibs along with a nylon spinnaker and its rigging. All lines lead aft to 2 winches and jammers on the cabin top.

4 winches in the cockpit for Jib and Spinnaker with two winch handles. Adjustable back stay tension.

Instruments include new compass, speed and depth gauges. Wind speed and Apparent Wind gauges with mast top anemometer are present but need rewiring. VHF Radio.

Harnesses, Bosuns chair, Lifejackets, and Life ring.
Anchor with chain rode and line.
Two batteries with make-before-break switch. Electric Bilge Pump.
Port-a-potti (new three years ago but never used).

Other miscellaneous equipment such as a power polisher.

Custom cradle by Marine Cradle Shop, new in Fall 2014.

Why am I selling? It’s not the boat. Arthritis and some errant spinal discs prevent full enjoyment of sailing.

Asking $6,000

Boat is located at the base of the beautiful Scarborough Bluffs (Brimley and Kingston Roads) at Cathedral Bluffs Yacht Club in slip E05.

Slip is available to a new member.

2008 Humphreys designed Impression 434 "Our Alibi"

by Gerry
(Vancouver, BC)

Light & fast, yet predictable & solid passage maker

Light & fast, yet predictable & solid passage maker


Our Alibi is an Elan Impression 434 like no other.

To be sure, she is a comfortable modern cruising yacht offering an exceptional on board experience whether at anchor or under sail. However, with a long list of upgrades, custom features and professional modifications, she offers passage making capabilities normally found only in a much higher price bracket.

Having completed an Atlantic circuit (Madeira – West Indies – Bermuda – Azores – Madeira) in the first half of 2015, she has recently cruised the Canary Islands and is now lying at Marina Lanzarote.

In other words, she is not only ARC or Odyssey ready, she is already perfectly positioned for another westbound Atlantic crossing. And if your desire is to explore the Med first, she’s only 4 or 5 days’ sail from Gib. Of course, there's absolutely nothing wrong with sailing the Canaries, Madeira and the Azores, which is easily done from her current base.

I would not hesitate to deliver her to any reasonable location a newer owner desired, or to make a short familiarization passage with the buyer.

To receive a slideshow describing the yacht and all her features, together with a photo gallery that tells the story much better, please e-mail me at

'Apollo of Brough', Ohlson 38 - For Sale


Apollo of Brough at anchor

Apollo of Brough at anchor


Apollo of Brough is an Ohlson 38 ... with a difference!

The current owner bought this beautiful yacht 15 years ago and she has been extensively prepared for long distance cruising for either a single - handed sailor or a couple. The owner and his girlfriend moved on board two years ago and together set sail from the UK and crossed the Atlantic and since then they have cruised the Caribbean islands. 'Apollo of Brough' is now sadly for sale and is currently located on the hard in North Sound Marina in Antigua. Lovingly maintained, she would be ready to start a new adventure immediately with new owners.

A professional out of water survey was carried out in Lanzarote in 2015 with a favourable summary (a copy of which can be made available to very serious enquiries) and the standing rigging was replaced in 2014.

Designed in Sweden and built by Tyler Boat Company in Brough on the Humber (UK), to exceed Lloyds specification, the Ohlson 38 is iconic.

Apollo of Brough was built in 1981 and modified by the current owner several years ago to increase the waterline length for comfortable, easy motion and speed. She is fast and manoeuvrable with her large balanced spade rudder.

With a beautiful handcrafted wood interior she is the perfect combination of solid classic design and contemporary lines.

'Papa' a Nantucket Island 38

(Stuart, Florida, USA)


For more boats like this one that are currently for sale please go to Cruising Sailboats for Sale...

This is a unique opportunity to purchase 'Papa', a lightly used, USCG Documented, 1985 Nantucket Island 38 sailing yacht that has been well cared for by the previous three owners since it was new. The previous owners have recently invested over $150,000 in upgrades. She is very well equipped for cruising and is in great shape. This is not a fixer upper but a rare Classic FRP Bluewater Sailing Yacht that has been constantly upgraded and is ready to cruise. Just pack your suitcase, get onboard with some provisions and go! She shows well and is very comfortable. Currently in the water, on a canal, in a wonderful location, just a short walk from downtown Stuart, Florida. This is a great location, safe and secure, with great neighbors, in a very private 8 slip marina, with water and metered electric.

Watch the video...

The slip location is a perfect Hurricane Hole as it is approximately 14 miles from the Atlantic coast, convenient to the Saint Lucie River, the Inter-coastal Waterway(N/S) and the Okeechobee Waterway (E/W). From this location it is a simple matter to get to either Florida Coast, the Bahamas, or the Caribbean and beyond. Excellent location and extremely hard to find rare jewel, location is everything, slip, is about as rare as the Nantucket Island 38. Perfect boat, in the perfect location for Snowbirds who live on their boat and cruise all winter, but go home in the summer.

The Peter Cole designed Nantucket Island 38' is a very rare flush deck, center cockpit, aft cabin, twin head cruiser, that has a very functional and spacious layout below in teak, which many refer to as "Floating Furniture". You will be hard pressed to find a nicer yacht, in this condition, in a better location.

The interior layout of the Nantucket Island yacht is not only exquisite but very functional. Few sailing lots in this size can match the feeling one has below deck. The high freeboard and flush deck result in good headroom throughout the interior. Upon entering, one gets the feeling that you are aboard a much larger yacht. The Nantucket Island 38 seems more spacious the most 50 sailboats. The interior space is very well thought out and comfortable. There is plenty of room for guests, as well as entertaining on board this fine yacht.

For long-distance bluewater cruising, there is nothing like an aft cabin master suite, with ample headroom and ventilation, to make the trip more enjoyable. Four opening ports provide great crossflow ventilation as well as the ability to peer outside and see what is going on to port, starboard and aft, a large opening deck hatch allows one to look up at the stars at night, while lying in the masters berth . This hatch also allows the warmer air to escape as it is replaced by the cooler air coming in through the open ports in the hull nearest to the cooler water. Four, 3-speed, 12 V fans provide additional circulation, installed near each port. A Mermaid heat pump provides both cool and hot air to the aft master suite area with its own thermostat control. This allows the captain or first mate to set the temperature independently from the forward heat pump in the V berth and salon area. There is also a settee adjacent to the masters berth which provides a nice place to sit down while getting dressed, or to sprawl out in the privacy of the masters suite and enjoy a good book. The settee can also provide a berth for a child to sleep next to their parents, or a comfy place for a short nap. Storage space is abundant in the masters suite. Every square inch is utilized in this well thought out, comfortable and functional aft cabin. A large closet provides ample room to hang clothing which well ventilated, keeping your clothes looking wrinkle free during your shore excursions. 12 LED lights provide plenty of lighting, even inside the closets. They are dimmable and provide blue night lighting for ambience. Linens, sheets, blankets and towels are included in the sale of this vessel.

Moving forward from the master suite is a large head located adjacent to the companionway between bulkheads. Two raised panel teak doors provide privacy. One closes off the amid ship area, the other closes off the aft cabin area. This area provides plenty of space for a couple to shower together if desired. Vacuflush heads provide worry free waste extraction. A monitor tells you how much waste is in the tank. Stainless Steel handrail provides safety in rough weather and an opening porthole provides ventilation.

Moving forward from the companionway, adjacent to the master suite head, you will find the navigation station to your right. Companionway steps with SS handrails lead up to the center cockpit area amid ship. To the left is the galley area.

The galley on the Nantucket Island yacht is no exception to the rule of form following function rule which was applied throughout the spectacular sailing yacht. The galley is much larger than one would expect on a yacht in this class. C shaped, the gallery sink faces aft.

Moving forward, located amidships is the salon area, which has two settees facing each other, on either side of the vessel. A large table is located near the center of this area, which has a foldable leaf which can be extended out toward the opposite settee. The Starboard settee area comfortably seats four people easily or six in a pinch. Extending the table leaf provides the ability for three to four more people to sit at this table and enjoy a meal, by utilizing the Port settee. This is an amazing yacht, providing ample space for entertaining below deck.

The table can also be lowered providing a berth for a couple to sleep quite comfortably.

The galley on the Nantucket Island yacht is no exception to the rule of form following function rule which was applied throughout the spectacular sailing yacht. The galley is much larger than one would expect on a yacht in this class. C shaped, the gallery sink faces aft. Both the sink and faucet have been recently upgraded. The sink is black granite and very deep. The faucet is euro style with the adjustable and extendable water spray head makes cleanup a breeze. Two overhead 60 LED lights provide plenty of light to the galley area. Two additional LED white/red lights can be utilized for additional lighting or preserving night vision during offshore passage making. Additional LED lighting near the galley sink does likewise. Refrigeration is a dual Sea Frost System with separate freezer which is larger than most refrigerators. The freezer has two plates, one on each side, which keeps internal temperatures cold enough to make ice and keep ice cream! The refrigerator is also quite large and runs cold enough to freeze water next to the single plate. The freezer and the refrigeration systems are independent of each other and quite efficient running on 12 V. If one fails, the other will keep functioning, meaning you will not lose 100% of your cooling capacity, only 50%, allowing you to preserve your food supply until repairs can be made.

Counter space is ample and adequate compared to many other yachts in this class. A Force 10, three burner gimbaled propane range with large oven provides the cook with the ability to prepare fine gourmet meals. A separate induction 120 V cooktop provides further cooking abilities and a back-up if you run out of propane. An automated LPG sensor provides safety shut off in the event of an LPG/propane leak. The galley is fully equipped with pots, pans, cooking utensils, dishes, cups and silverware which are included in the sale. A Kumma LPG grill is mounted on the aft of the vessel, with dual fiberglass LPG tanks. Mr. Coffee maker, grinder, VitaBullet, and electric tea pot, are included.
Nearby is a large pantry built into the galley counter which provides ample storage for dry goods. A serving counter between the salon and the galley provides separation from the salon, as well as space to serve food. It is open and airy so the cook does not feel isolated.

On deck we use a Hood Systems Roller Furling H253.5 SeaFurls 2 for the head sails. A furling genoa with Sunbrella protector provides protection from the sun. A smaller storm sail with Sunbrella protector is also included in the head sail package. Both head sails are in very good condition and are built by Neils Pride. A new asymmetrical spinnaker with a sock is also part of the forward sail package. Mack brand fully battened with 3 reef points, main sail is new. A Mack Pack, Lazy Jack sail cradle, makes sail handling easy. A low friction VHMW Dash PE sale track and slide system allows one to raise the main sail without a winch and allows one to drop the main sail in seconds. A Sunbrella main sail cover protects the Mack Pack and main sail during storage.

Rigging has been recently inspected along with Chain Plates and are in very good condition. 4 Lewmar Self-tailing winches provide easy sale handling from the cockpit. Additional winches are installed on the mast. A new Boom Vang was installed recently. Running rigging is in good shape, winches were recently serviced.

In the bow section you will find the anchor chain locker. Ground tackle consists of Lewmar Delta fast set manganese anchor attached to 500 feet of 3/8 anchor chain. This is the primary anchor and provides excellent holding ability. The secondary anchor is a stainless steel Lewmar Claw Style with 100 feet of 3/8 chain on 500 feet of 5/8 inch anchor rope. The backup anchor is a Fortress FX 37 on 50 of chain/ 500 feet of 5/8 anchor rope. A Maxwell 1500 windlass does the lifting.

TOSCA 36 sailboat for sale


The Tosca was designed by Angelo Lavranos as a cruising boat - built of fibreglass in Cape Town - to withstand South African waters.

She will start sailing slowly in about 4 knots of wind and the worst South African frontal winds we encountered registered 70 knots very briefly.

We bought Lady-U in 1995 in Durban. We became live-aboards in 2000 and sailed from South Africa for the last time in 2004. Since then we cruised across the Indian Ocean, finally making our way to S.E.Asia - that wonderful area of cheap cruising and plentiful anchorages.

Now old-age and ill-health are forcing us to give up our beloved home and lifestyle - we will have to become land lubbers again.

The Tosca is a sloop-rigged, centre cockpit, monohull. She is beamy and very spacious inside.
The fore cabin has a V-berth 2 metres wide.
Heads compartment is light and airy.
Saloon has comfortable seating for 7 people with a table (with fold down flaps) in the middle.
Nav station on starboard side and galley on port side.
The aft cabin is accessed from the cockpit. It is airy with a double berth to port side and a hand basin and small sofa on starboard side.
There are lots of cupboards, drawers and lockers in the front, middle and back for storage. When we left South Africa, we packed about 2 years worth of non-perishable groceries on board.
The cockpit is lovely and has lots of seating and fabulous lazerettes. The doghouse (solid dodger) was added in 1998. It has an opening windscreen to let the breeze come through the cockpit. There is a Sunbrella sun-cover over the back portion of the cockpit to keep us shady and cool in this very sunny climate, also to keep us dry in the rainy season.

Length: 36'00" or 11.00m;
Beam: 12'10" or 3.90m;
Draft: 5'7" or 1.7m;
Weight: 7 tons;

Harken roller furler (2010) genoa with UV-strip;
Spare genoa - hardly used - no UV-strip;
Hank-on storm jib for removable inner fore-stay;
Fully battened main sail with stackpack;
Vetus M4.14 33hp - in good running order - oil and filters changed every 100 hours;
3 blade prop (but the old 2 blade prop is still on board as a spare);

155w from 2 solar panels with controllers;
Air Marine wind generator;
Adverc smart charger;
2 x starter batteries (bought Feb 2017);
4 x household batteries;

Wheel steering
Aries wind vane;
Simrad wheel pilot;
Maxwell horizontal windlass with capstan (2015);
Claw 20kg anchor with 75 metres 10mm chain and spare 20kg claw anchor;

Zhenbo 2.3 metre Hypolon dinghy with air-deck floor (2016);
Parsun 3.6hp o/b motor;

Last anti-fouling and re-launch done March 2016. The boat was on the hard-stand while we flew to U.K. and South Africa. The hull was in good shape.

All sorts of spares and repair kits etc. The original instruction manuals for the equipment are neatly stored in 2 files. The present owners will not be needing most of the items on board for their land based new lifestyle.

Malaysia has no import duty on sailing yachts coming into their country. Langkawi is a duty free island.

She comfortably sleeps 6/8 in 3 cabins.
All the way aft is the owner’s stateroom with its own private head. Next forward is the large saloon with seating for eight around the marble table. A steering station is in the saloon.
Going forward down three steps to a central passage way one finds the galley to starboard and the port cabin to port. The port cabin comprises one double bunk and one single bunk, ample hanging storage and 3 drawers.
Next forward is the starboard cabin. Again comprising one double bunk and one single, hanging locker and drawers. Lots of storage under the bunk.
Through the starboard cabin is the forepeak. This houses the generator and sails, tools etc. Between the starboard cabin and the port cabin is the forward head. Both heads have showers.
Six people can easily and comfortably sleep on board, two on the double bed in the owner’s stateroom
aft, two in the two bunks in the port cabin, and two in the two bunks in the starboard cabin. At a push 3 can sleep in the guest cabins. Two more could bed down if the saloon table were converted to a double bed.

This well-maintained 'Formosa 51' ketch has ample accommodations for six to 10 people but can be sailed comfortably by a crew of two. Her gleaming white hull is complemented by traditional teak decking.

Below decks the teak woodwork and paneling, with leather button upholstery,and Tiffany lamp, provide up-classic comfort. She provides fun sailing in classic surroundings.

Our intention was to complete some minor cosmetic work (one saloon cushion needs reupholstering, we have the leather patches, and some ply needed in master cabin) and to put her on the market for US$175,000 $160,000 but we don’t have the time.

The cosmetic work needed will cost a maximum of US$2000 so she is priced for a quick sale!

She is documented and registered in the UK and is considered to be VAT paid because of her age.

Skorpion 1200 for Sale


For more boats like this one that are currently for sale please go to
Cruising Sailboats for Sale...

The steel hull of this Skorpion 1200 was built 1984 by Feltz in Hamburg, Germany. I completed the interior and all deck fittings myself, and launched her in 1986 (all VAT and taxes paid).

She was built and equipped for cruising and blue water sailing (our dream was to sail her around the world). She can be easily sailed single handedly or with family.

With her overall length of 13m, beam 3.77m, daught 1.8m, a long keel, moderate yacht stern and traditional overhanging bow, she cuts easily and elegantly through the waves, which makes sailing with her comfortable and remarkably dry even in heavy seas.

She has a fairly deep aft cockpit, so that sailing with small children is safe and sheltered in all conditions.

She has 6 fixed berths: 2 in a V-shaped forward cabin, a cabin with bunks just in front of the mast, and a portside aft cabin with a double berth.

The U-shaped saloon settee with table converts into another double berth, if needed. The space for the starboard aft cabin has not been fitted out and is used as storage/ engine compartment/ bike shed, increasing her ample storage space even further.

The engine has been recently replaced (approx. 600 running hours) and is a 62hp Kubota diesel based Betamarine engine. The 350l diesel tank sits in the keel just above the 4ton lead ballast. Also in the keel are two 200l stainless steel water tanks and a 90l waste water tank.

Although we never managed to sail around the world with her, she has taken us on tens of thousands of miles through most of the Baltic Sea, North Sea, Irish Sea and North Altlantic. Even in heaviest weather she has sailed us safely and comfortably through rough seas. But as we are getting older, sailing mainly in cold and rainy areas, and due to increased work commitments having less time for maintenance, we are intending to replace her (heavy-heartedly) with a motor cruiser.

She would need a complete corrosion check of the hull. She is suitable for someone who has the time and skill to renovate a steel hull, or somebody who is building their own boat of a similar size and seeking to use her equipment (a list of her equipment is available on request).

We have just sailed with her through Scottish waters, and she can be sailed from her current location in Northwest England anywhere/anytime.

'Shamaness', a Chung Hwa 36 Ketch for Sale

Shamaness at Cortez Marina, La Paz

Shamaness at Cortez Marina, La Paz


For more boats like this one that are currently for sale please go to
Cruising Sailboats for Sale...

The 'Shamaness' is a full keel, ketch rigged sailboat built in Taiwan in 1977. She was built of solid fibreglass in the hull, very heavily laid up as was the custom of the time. Blueprints list 5,000 pounds of keel ballast. I assume this to be cast iron. The hull shows no sign of water intrusion or blisters at anytime. A wineglass hull shape, makes her very sea-kindly, and her motion under sail is solid and stable. A staysail stay was added to give her better upwind performance (called a DOUBLE HEADSAIL ketch). Roomy salon and cockpit. 36 foot on deck with 4 foot bowsprit, 11’10” beam with Sitka Spruce mainmast (rebuilt with West System epoxy) and (Ballenger Spars) aluminum mizzenmast. Both booms are original Sitka spruce in very good condition. Northstar autopilot (with gyrocompass) and Octopus hydraulic ram drive, monitor windvane.

The original 3/8" teak decks are in service but need a complete re-caulking. All original deck screws were removed, treated with penetrating epoxy and re-screwed ten years ago. A few plugs now need replacing. Several areas of the deck have become "spongy" or internally delaminating. I have repaired the foredeck and area near the companionway entrance with epoxy and large teak plugs with a very satisfactory result. The various layers of deck are tied together with epoxy now. (The deck original construction was very robust with a top layer of 3/8" teak, then layer of 1/8"+ fiberglass, then 3/4" of teak plywood and an inside or bottom layer of 1/8" fiberglass).

All original portholes have been replaced with excellent quality NFM (New Found Metals) cast stainless steel opening ports.

New condition sails include storm jib and trysail. The high-cut yankee jib, staysail, full-batten mainsail were recently built by Pineapple Sails in Alameda, California and are in very good condition. The full-batten mizzensail has been used sparingly and is also in very good condition. The mizzen staysail, cruising spinnaker and genoa are older but are serviceable. The 3JH3 Yanmar 40 h.p. diesel engine has 5,000 hours running time and is in very good condition (well-maintained, never overheated, never rebuilt). The transmission gearing is 2.8:1 making a slower, more efficient motoring R.P.M. for the large right-handed propellor. This combination makes the 'Shamaness' an excellent upwind motor-sailing sailboat in the often steep chop found in the Sea of Cortez.

The 'Shamaness' engine is equipped with a 110 amp alternator and smart voltage regulator (with installed back-up heavy duty solid state voltage regulator) and 40 amp (110 volt) smart battery charger with back-up 12 amp automotive battery charger powered by Honda 1000 portable generator if needed.Two solar panels (75 amp, 60 amp) keep the batteries (4 new six volt golf cart batteries and one new 12 volt starting battery) charged at anchor for several days provided the sun shines all day. Two fuel tanks (32 gal aluminum and 25 gal fiberglass) provide plenty of diesel tankage for long voyages. Two water tanks (original stainless steel hold 100 gallons of freshwater).

The interior TEAK paneling and solid teak doors are in good condition. Cushions very nice of sunbrella new 5 years ago.

Most interior lights,the anchor light and the masthead Tricolor light are LED's. The head is electric (West Marine brand). Two electric bilge pumps are installed on a convenient to service stainless steel "tree" lowered into the bilge...each independently wired and plumbed. There is also a manual (whale) bilge pump. A Forespar stainless steel propane three burner stove with oven and broiler is installed in the galley. A Forespar propane cabin heater warms the sailboat in moderate cold weather. The water system is pressurized with an added foot pump in the gallery sink for dishwashing with seawater.

Blue water Voyages:
1996 and 2003 Baja HaHa, Central America to Costa Rica, Hawaiian Islands, Queen Charlotte Islands, B.C. and 20 years extensive cruising in Sea of Cortez, Mexico

Currently cruising in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Now on the hard at Marina Seca, San Carlos, Mexico.

Offered with all cruising gear (Radar, two depthsounders, Monitor windvane, VHF radio w/ AIS receiver, dinghy, o/b motor, SSB radio w/ modem and tuner, many spares.

37ft Ferro Cement Gaff Cutter (Colin Archer style) for sale

by Tricia
(Cape Verde/Caribbean)




We are about to cross from the Cape Verdes to the Caribbean, where we'll be selling our beloved 37 foot (on deck, 51ft LOA) gaff cutter. She's a home build from the 80s and we renovated her ourselves so there's no manual for this one! My partner and I have been cruising on her in the UK, Med and Atlantic for over a year and a half and she's an extremely safe, comfortable, enjoyable bluewater cruiser. We lived on her in the UK for three years before that - she also makes a great liveaboard. Selling due to work opportunities abroad.

Price: 35,000 USD
Built: 1982, Millbrook, UK
Materials: Ferro cement hull and deck, solid larch cabin top, solid douglas fir spars
Length: 37 foot (on deck, 51ft LOA)
Disp: 17 tonnes
Beam: 12ft
Draft: 6ft

Interior: Permanent double cabin forwards + pilot berth in aft cabin + settee single and double berths in main salon, c-head composting loo, 450L fresh water tankage, 120L deisel, log burner, Taylors paraffin cooker with oven, LED lighting throughout (including masthead tricolour), 6ft 4inch headroom throughout, spacious feel due to flush decks

Exterior: two sailing tenders stored neatly on deck, 200w solar panels, Aires windvane, 25kg Rockner Vulcan on 80m chain, 30kg Delta on 60m chain, 35kg fisherman anchor, manual Simpson-Laurence windlass, 4 man liferaft, fully retractable bowsprit.

Engine: Perkins 4107 - run 250 hours since rebuild

Location: Probably Antigua, but can go elsewhere for sale

Tech: depth sounder, VHF, AIS receiver, EPIRB, Windows based chart plotter

All systems on the boat are simple and sturdy to suit low maintenance long term cruising. She's in good condition though in need of the usual seasonal painting and varnishing. The hull was taken back to bare concrete and fully inspected three years ago - no rust bleeds or blisters at all. The sails are worn but serviceable (the main has a few repairs now), and had we not got this work coming up we would have sailed further!

'Charisma', an Islander 55 for Sale


For more boats like this one that are currently for sale please go to Cruising Sailboats for Sale...

Charisma is a 55 foot, cutter-rigged sloop designed by Bruce King. This is Hull #1 which was built as an all-out racing boat in 1968 for Mr. Jesse Phillips, from Phillips electrical company, under the then current CCA rule. Hence the beautiful overhangs. The hull has a full keel with a draft of 6'6" and a retractable centerboard with a maximum depth of 11'0". Her beam is 15'0"

The hull is solid fiberglass, pre-oil crisis (no blisters), with the deck being wood under fiberglass.

The cockpit is large with a full width bench in the back and 4 big lockers. The deck has 3 large hatches and 4 SS hatches, with some additional storage lockers.

After a short life as a racing boat Charisma was sold and moved to the Caribbean until 1998.

In 1998, the current owner bought her and sailed her to the Long Island Sound, where she is today.

Sails are in very good shape: Mainsail, 150% Jib, Staysail, Asymmetric Spinnaker with sock and storm sails.

The diesel engine, from Yanmar with 100hp, turbo-charged has about 100 hours on it. It was installed in August of 2015.

Charisma has white dodgers and a bimini, and a 6 person offshore life raft is included.

The current owner just came back from a cruise to RI and MA, and has started to update the interior and the project continues. Charisma still will need some work.

'Maid Jacqueline', a Hillyard Classic Cutter for Sale


For more boats like this one that are currently for sale please go to Cruising Sailboats for Sale...

'Maid Jacqueline' was built in 1946 by David Hillyard at Littlehampton, England

LOA: 40'10"
LWL: 26'0"
Beam: 11'4"
Draught: 4'5"
Displacement: 20tons TM
Lloyd's Register: N° 182523
Signal Letters: MCZD

In addition to ongoing upgrading and refurbishment, the 'Maid Jacqueline' has had two general overhauls, 1988/1989 in Istanbul and 2001/2003 in Marmaris. During the first general overhaul, in addition to extensive woodwork, the mast and boom, standing rigging, tanks, waterlines, electrics, chain plates and external fittings were also replaced and a hydraulic steering control was fitted. She is now one of the best examples to be found and an extremely smart and well found yacht, complete with everything required on a cruising yacht to sail away and explore the Greek Islands where she is presently based.

She is perfect for a solo or crewed Greek Island adventure and she is kept at a very inexpensive quiet safe marina on the Greek island of Samos. This makes a fantastic summer and winter base 5 minutes walk form the famous town of Pythagorio and in-view of Kusadasi Marina on the Turkish coast.

With all round visibility and comfortable seating, she has a superb wheel steered cockpit with brand new Bimimi sun shade and sail covers. The tall modern Alloy mast and Bermudian rig is easily handled by a solo Captain or small crew and the addition of modern winches and roller furling head sails make life very easy at sea and she sails beautifully.

There are so many features on this boat which make her the ideal cruising yacht for the Greek Islands.

Electric anchor winches forward and aft make stern or bow on moorings a breeze.

Recent cruising grounds in 2017/2018 include Patmos, Lipsi, Arki, Agathonisi, Fourni, Samos and the Turkish coast.

Finnrose 37 - Live aboard Cruising Sailboat. Ready to sail!


For more boats like this one that are currently for sale please go to Cruising Sailboats for Sale...
Our Sailboat 'Empress', a 1971 Finnrose 37 made in Finland, is For Sale!

We have just arrived in Salinas, Puerto Rico with 'Empress' on January 30, 2019. We’ve owned her since May 2017 and have already sailed from the Florida Keys, Bahamas, Turks & Caicos, Dominican Republic and now Puerto Rico. From here in Salinas, Puerto Rico it is literally a small jump away from St Thomas, in the US Virgin Islands. En route are the paradise islands of Vieques and Culebra to explore on the way! From St Thomas, you have the whole Caribbean Island chain right in front of you!

Save yourself the Eastward battle against the wind from the US by jumping on a boat that is already here, is actually ready to go, actively lived on and currently cruised - not sitting in a boatyard or alongside a dock for a year or more. It's a liveaboard boat designed for modern travellers like us and not a project boat so you can enjoy the full season sailing in the Eastern Caribbean.

Jonathan and I have been traveling the world for about 6 years now visiting more than 80 countries together, with more than two of those in South and Central America before we decided to buy a boat and go sailing in the Caribbean.

We have just arrived in Salinas, Puerto Rico and the time has come for us to sell our beloved Empress, 1971 Finnrose 37, improved and upgraded into an amazing liveaboard cruising sailboat. After almost two years on the boat and a total of nearly 6 years non-stop travel, Jonathan and I have decided to move back to Europe to do some 'grown-up things'.

She has new standing and running rigging, new bottom paint, a brand new custom hard top with davits and solar, new windlass, new windows/portlights, well maintained Perkins engine, 2000 watts generator, new fridge and Dometic freezer, 9 foot Caribe RIB with 9.8 Tohatsu outboard, new 35 lbs anchor and 150 ft chain (plus another spare anchor) and so much more... including every tool and spares required + appliances and an $800 worth of memory foam mattress (among other upgrades).

Her interior has been fully renovated which is designed for modern travellers like us. Basically, you just need to bring your clothes (maybe take some food as well but you can have some of our provisions that we recently bought from Sam's club.) and we shall be keeping her that way until the new owners come and get her to continue the adventure in Eastern Caribbean!

P.S. If you can’t buy her and can refer to potential buyers, we'd be happy to give 5% referral fee for a completed sale!

'Nanuk', a Derecktor 50 Ketch

Downwind before rebuild started

Downwind before rebuild started


For more boats like this one that are currently for sale please go to Cruising Sailboats for Sale...

Would you like to create one of the best go-anywhere sailboats in the world at a reasonable cost? Here's a chance to do just that. Continue our project with 'Nanuk' (previously called Snow Lion).

'Nanuk' is a Derecktor 50 Ketch One-Off, built 1998.

We really, really, really want to see someone take care of and finalize her! She has the potential of becoming an amazing family cruiser. Fast and exceptionally strong.

'Nanuk' was first launched 1998 at the Derecktor shipyard in Mamaroneck. Designed by Bob Derecktor and the owner Larry Huntington together. Her aluminium hull is an example of amazing craftsmanship. She's fast, strong and light. However she was completely useless as a family cruiser with an interior that looked more like a submarine.

The rebuild has created a new cockpit and new deckhouse which in turn has made possible a completely new interior. The interior build is on its way. The hull is extremely well insulated.

Safety - Additional information:
Imperative when sailing in tough waters is to feel safe on-board. For this matter we've created/prepared for a number of water tight compartments to ensure that she stays afloat if the hull should be punctured.

Rig & Keel:
The masts and booms are custom made carbon fibre ones with rod rigging - everything in good condition.
She had a lifting keel - now you have the option to go for either a fixed or a lifting version. We've created a structural design that allows you to have a choice - both being very strong.

There's quite a lot of equipment to go with her and I will send info of that to anyone who is seriously interested. A number of Lewmar winches including one electric. Examples of new never used equipment Victron Isolation Transformer, warm water heater & high pressure tank, 3 Facnor furling headsail sets (2 to go on her and one for spare parts).
No engine is included.

Create a dream:
It will take time, money, know-how and not least passion to walk 'Nanuk' all the way but what a great boat she has the potential to be. Strong enough to face any challenge and faster than most monohulls afloat.

Note though that to make her ready to go sailing it's not that long a stretch and please note that most of the really, really dirty and tough tasks are already done.

There are of course drawings and ideas in abundance to share, and I will support her new owner to the best of my knowledge.

Geographically she's located close to Karlstad in Sweden. Together with a buyer I can of course help solve the logistic challenges to have her moved.

More info will be sent if you are seriously interested.

We might consider a trade-in. Not a project.

'Wind Spirit', Newport 30 Mk III Racer/Cruiser for Sale

by Bruce Dunn
(Indiantown, Florida, USA)

30' Newport Mark III Bahamas Cruiser with New Upgrades


Wind Spirit is a meticulously maintained and refitted 1985 Capital Yachts Newport 30 Mark III; a surprisingly spacious, fast sloop beautifully upgraded for comfortable cruising. Designed by Gary Mull, she is very similar to a Catalina 30, but slightly bigger and faster. Wind Spirit is a great couples boat for cruising in the Bahamas and Caribbean or for inexperienced sailors looking for a forgiving boat.

All lines lead aft to the cockpit, so she is easy to single-hand and points well into the wind. We learned how to sail on this boat, so shes very patient and forgiving at sea.

Wind Spirit is also a low-maintenance boat with little exterior wood to varnish, 63-inches of headroom and lots of storage.

After refurbishing her engine in 2014, my wife and I shipped our Oregon fresh-water boat to Indiantown, Florida in September 2015 where we painstakingly upgraded her on the hard from the outer-hull inward for years of safe, reliable cruising in the Bahamas.

Fortunately for you, the hard, grinding and shockingly expensive work of getting her refitted and upgraded has already been done... especially the crucial physical/mechanical details that often go unappreciated until you skirt a potential disaster.

We're refitting & upgrading our other sailboat in a slip near Wind Spirit, so any time is a good time see her. Air-conditioning while on the hard makes her a pleasure to see on hot days, too! Wind Spirit is definitely a MUST-SEE before buying any other coastal cruiser... and she looks as good in person as she does in the photos!

'Lola', a Frans Maas 50 Schooner

by Judit
(Colon, Panama)


The 50 foot schooner 'Lola' is a charming sailboat designed by Frans Maas, in very good conditions and fully equipped, with a solid structure and a sharp bow that cuts through waves. She can comfortably accommodate 8 persons in 4 cabins, 2 double and 2 single with 2 berths.

We have been living during the last ten years on board in the Caribbean. The boat has been lovely sailed and maintained by us and she is ready to sail. We have just bought a new mainsail and 60 mts of new anchor chain. The deck was completely painted last year. The rigging, hull, engine, sails, boat structure and interiors are well maintained and in good conditions.

The reason why we are selling the boat, is because we need to go back home, as a result of some sudden family issues.

Boat history
The boat was built by the Dutch designer Frans Maas in Nice by request of a French couple who wanted to sail around the world in a steady and seaworthy hull. This was in 1989 and the boat was launched in 1990. The first owners (the French couple) started sailing the Mediterranean for 3 years before arriving to Mallorca in 1994 where they finally separated. We bought the boat in 2000, after falling in love with her hull shape. At that time, we were looking for a solid boat of this characteristics. So, 'Lola' has had only two owners from new.

Thank you for your interest. I have put a few notes together to respond to the interest I am receiving about the 'Second Wind'. Please read below.

I am the second owner and purchased the 'Second Wind' in 2005. During my ownership and as far as I know the boat has never taken on any water, has never been sunk, and never been damaged by hurricane, etc. I am looking into having the engine inspected, serviced and started while in storage so that you may have a better understanding of its condition. The Second Wind is a stable, secure boat that looked out for me during my years of sailing.

I replaced the original Yanmar with a new identical Yanmar 3GM30FC in October 2006. I sailed the 'Second Wind' until September 2007. I then left the boat in storage, moved to Chicago and got married. The 'Second Wind' has been in storage ever since. I registered the 'Second Wind' with the Coast Guard every year.
